    Nothing much will come from this team. Seems our American-born players have all dumped the team. Dare, thank so much for that senseless embargo placed on Nigwrian Basketball last year

      From being a potential World top 5 ranked basketball national team according to the vision of former coach Mike Brown, we are now struggling (with a remote chance) of securing one of 5 WC qualification spots from Africa.

      That is what happens when you get clueless incompetent narcissists like Sunday Dare fiddling with what they dont know jack about.

      Everything that man touches turns to blood.

      A team that used to brim with NBA stars now composed of “unattached nobodies” from USA and players from a local league that has not been held for almost 3 years now.

      I pray we never have another curse like him heading our sports ministry.

    How they destroyed African Best Male and Female teams destined for greatness is still a mystery. This should tell that Satan doesn’t want good for our sports. Else Nigeria has the tendency to rule a lot of sports.

      Hahahahaha…..who are the “they” you are referring to….LMAOoo. What Mystery is Mr Dare’s boot licker referring to….??? Are you not part of those who kept urging Dare on, praising every of his moves….???

      Have you forgotten how much insults and curses you rained on me over Sunday Dare…..LMAOoo…??

      Time really is always the greatest judge as I always say……LMAOooo.

      Useless myopic hypocrite. He could do no wrong in your eyes back then when we were chiding him for all his incompetent and evil moves back then.

      You could have even hung a framed picture of the man in you living room and surrounded it with lit candles and essential oils…that was how much of a god he was to you then. According to you no one had the right to say anything against him simply because he was a “Minister”……LMAOOoo….I never knew a position of public service such as a ministerial appointment was enough to qualify a man as a god. LMAOoo.

      And now you come here asking stupid questions about how everything good about our sports has been destroyed under Sunday Dare’s watch…….LMAOoooo.

      You really must be insulting our intelligence here…..LMAOoo
